Beer Advent Calendar: Day 22

Shipyard Brewing Company Fuggles India Pale Ale
No alc. given

This is apparently my last IPA in the calendar. And it was very enjoyable! Fairly mellow hoppy nose with quite a bit of alcohol scent. More turbid and muddy that I remember IPAs being. The body is very nicely balanced, and isn't overpowering with hops. It gets a bit more pungent when it warms up, yet nothing gets bitter or sharp.

This went very well with the bowl of pasta and roasted veggies that Susan made. A great combination!
